German watch brand A Lange & Sohne wows the watch-collecting community this year with its first highly classical-looking Richard Lange Minute Repeater. Crafted in platinum with a white-enamel and white-gold dial, the watch chimes the hours, quarter-hours and minutes. It is powered by a new hand-wound mechanical movement with 191 individually hand-finished pieces that work together seamlessly. The watch even skips the pause found in most minute repeaters that comes between the hour and minute strike when there is no quarter-hour double-strike tone. Just 50 pieces will be made.
